Superior Log Restorations provides expert log home chinking and sealing in British Columbia and Alberta. Chinking is a bit like caulking, except that it can cover a much greater surface area and fill in larger spaces. Your log home must be professionally chinked in order to protect it from the elements like rain, snow and moisture, as well as keep out vermin, insects and animals that belong outside. A chinked log home will be much more insulated than one that is not, which will, in turn, save a substantial amount of money down the road.
Chinking your log home also makes it look really nice, and that’s a benefit as well, but the real advantages of having your log home professionally chinked go way beyond its finished look. While a log home owner can purchase chinking material and equipment, this is a job best left to an expert who has experience in the industry. The benefits of hiring a professional to chink your log home far outweigh the costs involved. As it is a means of necessity to chink your home, you want to hire someone who is aptly qualified to do the job. Chinking is an art; with the proper tools, skill, experience and plenty of patience, a professional can ensure that the correct application will result in an end adhesion that will last for many years.
